Although there is no direct evidence to support that Alzheimer’s cure is a few years away, there is some evidence that suggests it can be true.
Researchers are working on stem cell therapy, immunotherapy and gene-based therapies to find a cure. They are also repurposing the existing drugs to improve patient life. However, these methods are not successful yet.
Another challenge is that the available synthetic medication comes with undesirable side effects. To overcome this problem, researchers are devising natural compounds that come from natural sources and have lower side effects.
A lot of research is going on in different areas but their translation to human clinical trials has proven challenging. It is mainly due to the fact that the exact mechanism of this disease is not known yet. Due to this, there is no cure for Alzheimer’s disease.
Despite this situation, the future is bright. It is because researchers always believed amyloid is the only reason that causes Alzheimer’s but now APOE alleles and Tau protein have been recognized as close contributors.
Moreover, the ever growing awareness of Alzheimer’s disease has built a strong global support group that helps you with the condition and your family to cope with everyday life.
